It's looking a lot like fall already: the weather is quite gloomy and grey, the leaves are turning into beautiful autumn colors and of course there are plenty of gorgeous fall nail polish collections out there! Today I have one of those to share with you guys, it's Essie's take on fall 2015 with the Leggy Legend collection.
*Press sampleI got the whole collection for review and these are again those Finnish/European version Essies with the wide brush and possibly a tad different ingredients and formula than the US Essies.
Bell-Bottom Blues is a dusty navy blue with teal shimmer that flashes in purple in some angles. For a blue-lover like me this is of course one of the favorites of this collection as it's a stunning autumn blue. Additionally it's a one-coater, so yeah, I'm totally loving this one!
Color Binge is a very bright that leans to orange or maybe even coral. It's almost like a neon as it is so bright! I used two coats with a coat of top coat. It's a jelly, so there's a bit of VNL after two coats, but it didn't really show too much and I'm pretty sure you can get rid of that with a third coat. It's a beautiful color and a bit unexpected in a fall collection.
Frock 'n Roll is a greyish taupe shade with strong purple hint. It has that stunning Essie-like silver shimmer in it and it's actually quite an unique shade to my collection. It has a perfect formula too as it coveres with just one coat. I did two thin coats here in my pictures just to be safe, but you can really use just one coat with this one. I'm totally in love with this shade, I actually wore this for a whole week and didn't even decorate it in any way. It's just perfect shade for fall!
In the Lobby is a dark plum jelly. It has a pretty great formula and it coveres with just two coats, and that's exactly what I did here. It's crazy shiny on its own. In the Lobby isn't really anything original, but it's a stylish shade nevertheless.
Leggy Legend is the namesake polish of this collection and it's seems to be pretty much everyone's favorite out of the collection. It's a molten bronze with a strong gold flash and pink shimmer. It's another one-coater of this collection and eventhough it's a metallic, it doesn't have those visible brush strokes, so it's another perfect formula by Essie! I can see why people love this shade so much, unfortunately, it didn't suit my skintone particularly well. I'm sure you will be happy to know that it also stamps pretty nicely, like Emma showed us!
With the Band is a rusty brick red creme. It coveres with two easy coats and all in all it's a very beautiful and flattering shade. If this isn't a fall color, I don't know what is!
I think this is really awesome collection with such a beautiful shades to wear this fall. My picks would be Bell-Bottom Blues, Color Binge and Frock 'n Roll, but I'm sure you all would enjoy the other three too, especially Leggy Legend. These should be in the stores already, so hurry and get yours while you can!
Which one of these is your favorite?
